Most of us relate “darkness” to a lot of negative things. Some people even link “darkness” to “evil”. We have an era called the “Dark Ages”; we call the pain or suffering phase of a person’s life as his “Darkest Hours”. But have you ever considering looking at “darkness” in an optimistic point of view?

Have you heard about this? They say that the darkest part of a day is the hour before sunrise. So if you think that you’re in the darkest part of your life, hold on and be glad, ‘coz you’re just an hour away from your sunrise!

For me, I consider “darkness” as an opportunity. A chance to show what you’ve got, an occasion that you can glow, glitter or light up, a time to SHINE! A great author Julia Cameron once quoted, “Creativity - like human life itself - begins in darkness”. So the next time the sun goes down on you, smile and twinkle, ‘coz you can always sparkle, WHEN DARKNESS FELL!

Hi Michael,

A nicely handled and well balanced noctural image from an eyecatching cityscape!

The repetition of the lights on the road side give great depth to the shot, however, the bridge with eyecatching architecture gives touch of art and the lights in the building in the left part of the picture, provide life to the image. The mirror reflections add huge amount of mood here where an introduction of clouds in the partially darker sky, look awesome. It seems everything is on its right place.

A beautiful shot accompanied by an informative note, is not that often to enjoy!

Thanks and regards,

bonjour Michael,
Très belle photo bien réalisée. J'aime la lumière sur la passerelle et la priorité au jaune est agréable à l'oeil.
Puisque vous étiez sur un trépied j'aurais augmenté le ISO et mis une ouverture à f22, juste pour voir le résultat; mais peut-être l'avez-vous fait?
Merci du partage.

Hi Michael,

This is a very nice night shot.
I really like the POV that gives a nice perspective to this beautiful bridge.
Sharp with details and nice night colours.

Well done and TFS,

j'aime bien les reflets, la couleur est intense et donne une sensation de chaleur, bravo!
